Punjab Enforces Section 144 in Lahore Ahead of Eid-ul-Azha

The Punjab Home Department has enforced Section 144 in Lahore, prohibiting the sale of sacrificial animals on highways, streets, and alleys. This measure aims to maintain law and order and ensure smooth traffic flow during the lead-up to Eid-ul-Azha.

Under this restriction, the sale and purchase of sacrificial animals are restricted to eight designated livestock markets within the city. This ban is effective immediately and will remain in place until June 20. The decision was made following a recommendation from the Deputy Commissioner of Lahore, who emphasized the need for such measures in the public interest.

The aim is to prevent chaotic situations on the roads and ensure that the city’s traffic flow remains uninterrupted. The designated markets are expected to provide a controlled environment for the buying and selling of animals, reducing the likelihood of congestion and maintaining public order.

The authorities have warned that any violation of Section 144 will be met with strict action to ensure compliance.

Meanwhile, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee confirmed the sighting of the Zilhajj moon in Pakistan, marking the beginning of the Islamic month of Zilhajj and indicating that Eid-ul-Azha will fall nationwide on Monday, June 17.

The announcement followed a meeting of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, chaired by Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad, held in Karachi on Friday evening. Simultaneously, zonal committees convened in various cities, including Lahore and Peshawar, to sight the moon.

The sighting was first confirmed by the zonal Ruet-e-Hilal Committee in Peshawar. Following their verification, Maulana Azad officially declared the moon sighting on behalf of the Central Committee.
